The Millennium Cross is 217 feet tall and is located on top of 3497 foot tall Mt Vodno. You can hike all the way up from the city or from the cable car. It is best to take the #25 double-deckers bus from the main bus station or catch it along the route. The bus runs every 40-minutes to an hour every day but Monday. Once at the Cable Car it is a short ride to the top. The cable car does not operate on
Mondays. Once at the top you can walk around the base of the cross and to the sides for different views. The tower was completed in 2000 to celebrate 2000 years of Christianity in the region. Unfortunately, you cannot go up inside the cross and the property is not being very well maintained with trash everywhere.

Great views. Caught a cab from the center for $311mkd. Was dropped off at the cable cars. $100mkd for round trip to the top. Very cool 360 views. Not much up top. A few places to grab a beer or soda. Disappointed to see so many street dogs😢. Wish I brought some food. Really sad to see them rummage thru garbage for food. I decided to walk back down to the city. There is a clearly marked foot path. A bit challenging at times (it is steep in some places) but worth the adventure. Took me about an hour. I’m 64 year old female.. felt very safe and enjoyed the solitude.

The Millennium Cross is situated on the top of Vodno Mountain to the south of the city. There is a cable car to the top, but I didn't go up as the cable car does not run on Mondays - the only day I was in the city. However the cross can be seen from numerous locations in the centre of Skopje. It is one of the most recent sites, in a city of new constructions, having been completed in 2019.

The Millennium Cross is one of Skopje's expressions and dedication to their Christian heritage. Its size and scale are impressive. Its located outside of the city center, but in a small suburb area that is very residential and nice.
Its a nice attraction to visit while in Skopje and connects you to the Macedonian people through their culture and heritage.

This is the first and last thing we saw while in Skopje. From our approach on the plane, till taking off on the way out, it lights up the sky. It can also be seen from pretty much anywhere in the city, and adds to a really charming city.

25a is the free bus up to the base of cable car. 100 den (£1) return trip per adult. Views were breathtaking on the cable car. At the top what a mess. Yes views are beautiful but these are detracted from but the immense grot. A good tidy up is desperately needed.
Cable car down was again lovely, but bus trip back to Skopje was hideous. Too many people pushing and shoving so the bus was totally overloaded and left us uneasy but we couldn’t get off even if we tried! Wait by the end of the car park for a taxi is my advice! Don’t get off the cable car either!!

Great view over the mountains and the city of Skopje. The cable car was nice and clean and it was nice way to reach the Millennium Cross. Nice cafe on the top, only minus was that there were no toilets.
